If you’ve ever decided to go on a diet, or know someone who has, you’re have some idea of just how many different types of diets there are.
Not to mention the styles of exercise that one can accompany their diets with, a lot of the success ends up depending on what happens to work best for you.
In project management, there’s a technique sometimes referred to as telescoping; I like to call it the Matryoshka Method (or, Russian Doll Method).
It’s a powerful technique that helps you keep everything organized at all times and it can be found in JobNimbus.
It’s done me wonders in being able to balance all the different things that go on in my busy work day.
The question is: could it work for you, too?
Better Project Management with the Matryoshka Method
One of the most vital qualities of good project management is your ability to keep everything organized from above.
You’re not always going to be at the front lines, so making sure that everything gets put where it needs to go must be established within a set process.
One way to keep everything organized in a set process is through the Matryoshka Method.
It means that you create a telescoping ‘folder-in-folder’ arrangement for all your files, photos, financials, documents, tasks, contacts, jobs, and work you do.
Just like a Matryoshka doll, each part of your process should fit neatly into another part of the process, and so on until everything is safe and sound in one container.
But not just together like that old box of LEGOs you used to play with. Each piece needs to neatly fit into the next, in the right AND same order every single time, without mistakes.
Just like a Russian doll.
But even with a process in place, keeping everything organized from afar and amid the daily tasks is no simple feat unless there’s a tool to keep it all together.
In JobNimbus, this method is perfectly applied. First, you have the contact; that’s your biggest and most prominent doll.
Inside that doll, you have the sales workflow, where you track your sales process and the status of the lead until you close the sale.
At the close of the sale, you move on to another bucket: the job. Here you’ve got a brand new set of dolls inside.
Estimates, photos, documents, work orders, material orders, tasks, notes, activity, invoices, and more, in that order.
Everything fits perfectly into the doll that precedes it, telescoping into a bucketed straight line that leads right to the answer for every question you have.
And, if you follow the process properly, using the tools provided, you won’t have to think about project management anymore. Just set it and forget it.
Need to know what’s going on with a job? You know right where to look.
Want to see the last thing that happened on a work order or if an invoice is paid? You just follow the hierarchy back.
Give the Matryoshka Method a try
Roll up your sleeves, get your hands dirty, flesh out your process, and plug it into JobNimbus in a logical sequence.
Doll after doll, job after job, you can bet that using this method to keep your business and process organized will take out the busy work and streamline your project management to perfection.
